WSJ identifies Steele dossier source in Cyprus

Wall Street Journal publication alleges a source in dossier on Trump was a Russian woman in Cyprus

Newsroom

A Wall Street Journal publication suggests that one of the sources in a secret dossier on Trump, compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, was a disgruntled Russian executive in Cyprus.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the female Public Relations executive was “source 3” in the dossier, with the report saying she had a “vast network” of sources.

The Journal alleges that the source, who was working in Cyprus and was an old friend with a person who worked for Steele, had been a classmate of Igor Danchenko, an analyst who helped Steele in an attempt to uncover potentially compromising information on then-candidate Trump.

Steele had carried out research to find dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump, with information ending up in a Special Counsel report by Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 US election.
